I have been thinking about this all morning and came up with a somewhat crazy alternate theory:
IF this is actually the information for the trigger, what if he "disappeared" himself? Maybe he has information pertinent to the election and he really needs to get out said info. If he throws his last ace on the table....he is pretty much dead anyway. So, he makes it look like he is missing, fails to do a check in and the info gets released.
Meanwhile, he is in a remote location hiding out.
Maybe I'm giving him too much credit.

I think those who said it's a hash are right.. don't think it's a PGP key. Here is for example, Green Greenwald's public PGP key: 734A 3680 A438 DD45 AF6F 5B99 A4A9 28C7 69CD 6E44
Snowden's code was 64 characters long.. so it's almost certainly a secure hash.
But I think we must be prepared to accept the possibility that Snowden's cat was walking across his keyboard as well.
SHA-256 encryption is used to encrypt the key used to decrypt the data file. In other words you decrypt the key with SHA-256 and then use that obtained value has the key to decrypt the AES-256 file archive.
Snowden said in Al-Jazeera interview that ordinary government workers would ‘very likely face prosecution’ for sending classified emails over personal server.
Snowden was also asked if he was concerned about what the Republican frontrunner Donald Trump might do to him if he is elected president in 2016. Trump has called Snowden “a total traitor” and “a bad guy” and said “there is still a thing called execution”.
Snowden was not concerned.
“It’s very difficult to respond in a serious way to any statement that’s made by Donald Trump,” he said.

I agree, but in an interview of Snowden recently with Aljazeera, he was asked about the Hillary claims and the leaked e-mails, he call Hillary claims ludicrous, but when asked about what he think About Trump he really didn't said much just that with Trump running for the presidential seat was still too early.
I wonder how he feels about Trump now that he is the GOP presidential candidate. So whatever Snowden have on our presidential candidates seems to lean more to Hillary and perhaps the Obama administraiton.

Personally I am hoping for one of these:
# 9/11 was a inside job
# Aliens are here and we have made some sort of deal
# The reason why we have not been to the moon for a long time
# Fake moon landings
# Underground bases and human experiments
# Chem trails is real and the reason
# Information about planet X
# upcoming meteor event
